NORMAN, Okla. -- An Oklahoma police officer picked up an unusual passenger Tuesday morning.

Officer Kyle Canaan was called to a busy street in Norman after getting reports of a miniature donkey in the area.

With a little pushing and pulling and some animal feed, the officer rounded up the donkey, nicknamed Squishy, and put it into the back of his patrol car.

"It was a perfect fit," Canaan told KFOR. "I was able to shut both doors. I rolled the window down for it."

Squishy was only in police custody for about four miles.

Canaan was happy to help but not so pleased with the evidence he left behind.

"It used the bathroom in the back of my police car - number two,” Canaan said. "I mean, I must have got it right after breakfast, because there was a lot.”

Police were looking for Squishy's owner and asking for proof of ownership.
